About Bill Murray and Friends
Bill Murray’s latest project is drawing rave reviews across the country, and he will bring it to the Palladium in October.
New Worlds, a collaboration between the legendary actor-comedian and acclaimed German cellist Jan Vogler, is an exploration of classic American music and literature that Billboard has called “a truly enchanting evening.”
Readings set to classical music
Accompanied by Vogler, pianist Vanessa Perez, and violinist Mira Wang, Murray sings and recites works of Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Walt Whitman, James Fenimore Cooper, Leonard Bernstein, the Gershwins, and other artists who have inspired and influenced generations of Americans and given others a picture of the charm, energy and creative force of the New World.
Murray and Vogler premiered the project in 2017 with an album release and live performances that have left critics struggling to describe it.
Positive media reaction
“The evening’s journey was unpredictable and affecting,” said the Toronto Globe & Mail, “old-fashioned entertainment that was sophisticated but with zip and heart.” The Chicago Tribune described New Worlds as “a show no one else could have done … a unique and hugely enjoyable entertainment.”
The performance begins at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5. Tickets starting at $40 go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the Palladium Box Office, online at TheCenterPresents.org, or by phone at (317) 843-3800. The performance is part of the Center’s 2017-18 Season sponsored by Allied Solutions.
